Collaboration is the heartbeat of the SAC

No company alone can shift the existing industry paradigms. To ignite the change required to redefine how the industry is run, peers and competitors come together as a united front on common ground, adhering to the Coalition’s set of core collaboration values that are designed to further impactful change across the industry. Through SAC membership, brands, retailers, and manufacturers commit to transparency, the sharing of best practices, and making meaningful improvements, a full-circle collaboration that benefits all involved. 

In order to drive systematic change, the SAC also collaborates with external partners and institutions. The Coalition supports a coordinated dialogue with authorities and the EU for a harmonized and fact-based application of existing rules and feeding into ongoing development of new legislation to satisfy industry and consumer needs.

“The SAC is unlike any other organization changing the world. In the past ten years, we’ve overcome a tipping point. Normally outside, our companies are competitors. Here we’re all sitting at the same table and changing the climate impact of our industry. I’ve never seen this in any other industry, where people sit around one table and really focus on what needs to be done.” – RÜDIGER FOX, CEO SYMPATEX, KEYNOTE SPEAKER 2019 SAC Annual MEETING
